  • About the Event:

GK Arts Center presents GELSEY KIRKLAND BALLET’S Mischief, Mischief and More Mischief!

Featuring Renditions of

1) The Wedding Procession by Leonid Yakobson

2) Walpurgis Night by Leonid Lavrovsky

3) Harlequinade ­– back by popular demand!

  • About the Three Performances:

Russian/Jewish choreographer Leonid Yakobson‘s The Wedding Processionsubtitled The Jewish Wedding, is set to Shostakovich’s “Piano Trio Number 2 in E minor” from 1944 and inspired by Mark Chagall’s art.

The Wedding Procession tells the story of the poor groom whose pregnant lover is forced to marry into a wealthier family – in front of everyone in the shtetl including the Fiddler, the Piper, the Rabbi, both families, and of course the town gossip. The work is set by Gelsey Kirkland Ballet’s ballet master Nikolai Levitsky

In contrast, the second ballet of the evening will be Walpurgis Night – the famed Bachanalian scene from Charles Gounod’s Faust where virgins, satyrs, Pan and Roman Patricians celebrate the festival of Bacchus and culminating in an orgy-tastic finale. This exicitng work features magnificent sets of Roman ruins originally created for New York City Opera’s production of Mephistopheles,as well as original costumes form the production. Originally choreographed by Leonid Lavrovsky, this rendition has also been restaged and choreographed byNikolai Levitsky and Vera Soloveyva.

Back by popular demand and rounding out the evening is the adorable 19th century one-act classic Harlequinade. Showcasing all the stock commedia dell’arte characters, the work features the mischievous shenanigans of the cunning Harlequin and his adorable Columbine, who is jealously guarded by her father who conspires to marry her to a rich fop.
